Learning can be FUN

Standard

 

Mrs. Cassidy has a blog,Mrs. Cassidy’s Classroom Blog, and she shares some classroom games that she uses to teach in her classroom. In a way I can compare myself to Mrs.Cassidy because in the future, when I have my own class, I would like to have my lessons based on games and make it fun for my students.

    The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.

She also adds electronics to her daily teaching and what surprised me the most was using the NintendoDS and her students worked together to make up rules for the game they had.

As I mentioned above I relate to Mrs. Cassidy  because she inclides games into her lessons. Moreover, as an elementary Bilingual teacher that I want to become, I need to use visual so my non-English speaking students can understand and visualize while I teach. I also would like to have activities that could add hands on lessons, this way students can interact with each other and help each other as well. Something this teacher does during math time.

I also found two great video that I would like to share and that might motivate us to become better teachers. =D

 

My kind of teaching

Standard

I want to become a Bilingual (English/Spanish) Teacher. I love working with kids, specially helping them out when they need help. I’ve been working with bilingual students four years now and it is a nice experience. However, I have seen teachers who don’t give enough attention to newcomer students and those who have different kind of learning skills. I would like to become a teacher that creates lessons to the understanding of every   student. Also make it understandable and fun for them. They are learning a new language and students need to visualize the meanings of the vocabulary words that they are learning. I want my students to have fun in class while learning a new language.
